Cooking With Cricut Challenge: Color Challenge

Happy Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my Cooking With Cricut Challenge post.  Melin asked the team to come up with a project using the following color palette:


Brown, kraft, cream, green and red -- perfect colors for the Fall season!  Here is what I came up with . . .


A tall card!  My card base is a cream-colored card stock and measures 9 1/4" tall by 4" wide (folded).  The layered kraft-colored piece measures 8 1/2" tall by 4" wide.  Each of my paper "ribbons" was cut from leftover scraps -- there are two pieces of grosgrain ribbon in there, too.  The paper ribbons measure 1" wide by 2"tall and 3/4" wide by 2" tall.  I created them using the Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge and Cricut Design Studio software.  I simply welded a rectangle and two triangles together to mimic the "tailed" ribbon.  The "happy birthday" phrase was printed out using my computer.  And a few buttons tied with binder's thread and a bit of red ink add the finishing details to my card.  

I hope you'll head on over to Cooking With Cricut and play along with us.  You have until next Tuesday at midnight to link up your project using our color combo -- you might just be our next "Top Chef!"

I love this! I've been wanting to play around with banner shapes and your card is delightful. What a great way to use papers on hand.
